A Bib Short Built for Long Distance Rides

This bib short is designed to help you crush big miles in comfort. It is made for rides of more than 5 hours and has been ridden in events such as :

  • Transcontinental Race
  • Paris-Brest-Paris
  • Race Across America
  • Pacific Coast Bicycle Race
What can these pockets carry? :

The model in these photos is 6 foot 3.5 inch, 38" Hip & Glute circumference, weighs 180 lbs. He is wearing a size L (Regular) and is carrying the following items, with room for more :

  • Samsung Galaxy S9+ phone & 1 Gel with room for 2 more (thigh pocket)
  • 3 cereal bars, with room for 1 more (thigh pocket)
  • Banana & 2 inner tube (lower rear pocket)
  • Pump, Tyre Levers & 1 inner tube (upper rear pocket)
Available in 2 Inseam Lengths:

This bibshort is available in 2 inseam lengths - Regular & 2" Shorter Inseam. The 2" Shorter inseam version is a Regular Length with 2" taken off the legs. It's tailored for riders who need bibshorts with shorter legs.

For example : A 180 lbs (81kg) rider who is 5 foot 6" would need a size XL or 2XL for his girth. However, the size XL (Regular) or 2XL (Regular) will be too long for him. He will need the size XL (2" Shorter Inseam) or size 2XL (2" Shorter Inseam) for his 5 foot 6" height.

Note for Returning Customers :

This bib short has been designed to retain the same fit, feel and performance as the bibshorts you've been purchasing for years from RedWhite. The only major change is the new Silicone Macro-Dot Gripper (see photos). This gripper was chosen for 2 reasons :

  1. It is more durable and doesn't overstretch with use. It stays grippy longer than the gripper used in our older bibshorts.
  2. It grips knee and leg warmers & coolers better. You can easily slip this gripper over the ends of your knee / leg coverings and have it hold those coverings better than the old grippers.

Keen eyed customers would notice the new rubber logo stitched on left thigh. This rubber logo has been ride-tested extensively. You won't notice it while riding. It is also washing-machine friendly and durable. Please note to only wash your bibshort in a cold wash cycle and never use a dryer-machine. Heat damages lycra and rubber.

    My go to bibs

    Ever since I found Red/White Apparel bibs, they have been my go to bibs. I bought a pair of the cargo bibs earlier this year for a ride I was doing and being able to carry a few extra items was very beneficial. I bought a second pair for a bike trip I am doing early next year (2024). These bibs should be just what I need to carry what I need.

    Great feel, finish, and value. Love the back pocket config. Prefer them to my Rapha.

    Do not hesitate, just get your size nail down and order them. You will not find anything in this price range or higher in my opinion. I own the Rapha cargo bibs, and these are better - more aerodynamic fit around thighs and a better rear pocket configuration (over/under). They arrived to Western United States less than five days.

    Ordered these for a 100 mile self-supported desert ride. Needed all the storage I could get, and these did not disappoint. The two rear pockets are a great compliment to a jersey because they hang lower for easy

    The padding is also properly trimmed in the front and a little less bunched up than my Rapha cargos. I still like the Raphas for cruising around on shorter rides, but for an all day ride, I will always reach for the red and white. The only thing I would correct is I wish there were other colored choices other than black(boring) , and that the thigh pockets were setback just to touch more to keep them more aerodynamic when stuffed with gels and other items. On a 9 hour ride, every wrinkle counts.

    Amazing chamois

    Bought The Bib in Apr and then decided to try the cargo version in Oct. both bibs were amazing in terms of fit, chamois and stitching. Tried Rapha and BSC but they don’t come close to the quality and value RedWhite provide. I don’t think I will ever try other bibs again. 👍👍👍

    My brother Carrlos and his wife are an avid cyclists. They are pushing me and my wife to join them. When we decide to start riding with them, first thing they said, get a bib shorts from RedWhite apparel. Best purchase. They are really confortable and the pockets is a plus. First try, amazingly ride.
    We highly recommend this.

    New Favorite Bib Short

    I've found a new favorite Bib Short! The RedWhite Cargo Bib has immediately become my go-to for longer days in the saddle. Fit is snug, and sizing runs a size smaller than other bibs I own. I wear an XL in RedWhite but a Large in other brands. I'm a fan, and I'll be back.

    Great shorts

    3rd pair of Red White bibs, just as good as the others. Sizing on the Cargo Bibs is smaller than other variants. I usually run a Small but the Medium Cargo are very tight on me. Nice and snug where you need it.

    Best Bibs

    These are my fourth pair of Bibs from RedWhite, great fit, comfortable and excellent value for money considering the comfort and practicality. Excellent service as usual.

    Best cargo bibs in my collection

    I own various cargo bibs and found the REDWHITE cargo bibs to be my “go to” from now on. I have worn them at several gravel races and some 70km + rides. Chamois is comfortable and just the right feel. The many pockets are beneficial to carry everything I need and now my handlebar bag has remained off the bike. Quality is high and found them same level if not better than some of the other pricey bibs in my closet. I highly recommend REDWHITE and customer service and support has been tremendous. Thank you Yuva!

    Snug fit and immaculate workmanship!

    Bought a couple of Cargo Bibshorts XL size. I weigh 90 KGs and height is 168 cms. Hence opted for the shorter inseam length! They fit really well, though I feel I should've opted for the next bigger size. Nevertheless, I have decided to also reduce my body dimensions (and weight too) to be able to glide into the shorts and also enjoy them immensely. I used these during Paris-Brest-Paris and owe a lot to Red White for the amazingly comfortable Gel Pad that they use.

    Butt Heaven

    I’ve put some serious miles in wearing these cargo bib shorts and they’re like sitting on a cloud. Customer service and communication is top-notch too. Yuva is obviously very passionate about his field of work and providing a comfortable riding experience for his customers. I’m starting a two-week bikepacking trip on the GDMBR next week, so we’ll see how they hold up. I’ll add to my review afterwards.
